These soils are productive if excessive water accumulation can be managed. In a regional durum wheat variety trial, twenty genotypes were compared in a randomized complete block design trial with four replications at three locations. The aim of the study was to identify superior genotypes when grown on Vertisol fields using broadbed and furrow (BBF) water-managed plots versus on flat, level terrain. The trial was conducted in 1997 at Bichena, Enewary and Chefe Donsa. In general, grain yield was higher with BBF planting structures. Differences in genotype performance suggest genotype by environment interaction between the two planting systems, and germplasm adaptation to a particular planting methodology.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
